How Many 2001 German Wines Do You Have Left

What a great vintage 2001 was in Germany. I know many of us bought very deeply into the vintage. I took a look at my cellar recently and found that i had more 2001's left than I thought. In all, I have 46 bottles left. All whites. 37 are off dry, 8 are dry and 1 dessert wine. The largest producer is JJ Prum with 8 bottles.

I'm think I have to drink this at a faster pace. Perhaps I should put together a horizontal tasting for the Chicago crew.

Anyone else want to chime in with what they have left.

Here is what I have.  A horizontal tasting sounds like a good summer event.

1 - 2001 Gunderloch Nackenheim Rothenberg Riesling Auslese
5 - 2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese
4 - 2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese
1 - 2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett
2 - 2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese


Ok, you made me curious so I had to pop down and take a look.

Looks like the only '01's I have left are:

Two '01 Zach. Bergweiler-Prum Erben Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spatlese, and three of their Uriger Wurzgarten Spatlese.

Still have a ton of various '03 and '05's (yeah, I know, not the best years), and a few mixed cases of other German Rieslings going from 2004 up to 2011.
